    Fairfax County Police say 27-year-old Jaquan Ross escaped near U.S. Route 1 in Alexandria shortly before 7 a.m. Tuesday. He was found and arrested Wednesday morning.

    Police in Virginia say they've arrested a man who escaped custody while being treated at an area hospital. 

    Fairfax County Police say 27-year-old Jaquan Ross escaped near U.S. Route 1 in Alexandria shortly before 7 a.m. Tuesday. He was found and arrested Wednesday morning. 

    Police said Ross was wanted on charges including aggravated assault when he was taken into custody by bail bondsmen Tuesday. 

    They say Ross complained of pain and was taken to a hospital for treatment. A police release said that after Ross received treatment, he broke free from authorities and ran toward Route 1, still wearing a handcuff on his right wrist.

    Ross is facing charges from Tuesday's incident including possession of marijuana and obstruction of justice.

    He has additional outstanding charges from Fairfax County, the city of Alexandria and Virginia State Police. 

    It's unclear if he has a lawyer.
